with no one to frighten him.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 30:11 -

For I will be with you —

There is no remedy for your sores,

and no healing for you.[fn]

and your innumerable sins.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 30:15 -

Nevertheless, all who devoured you will be devoured,

and all your adversaries ​— ​all of them —

every citadel will stand on its proper site.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 30:19 -

Thanksgiving will come out of them,

a sound of rejoicing.
